Los Angeles Police Chief Willie L. Williams on Thursday denied a published report stating that his 1988 transfer of Philadelphia police officers undercut a police sting operation. "I have no knowledge whatsoever of ever being informed . . . a pending sting or other actions on or about Oct. 13, 1988," Williams said in a written statement released by the LAPD. "If I had been so informed of such a plan, no movement of the targeted personnel would have been made."

The Los Angeles Police Commission averted--at least temporarily--a head-on collision with retiring Chief Daryl F. Gates on Tuesday, forming a special committee to review a series of reassignments the chief had refused to rescind in defiance of a commission order. The panel's action, which came without debate, appeared designed to de-escalate tensions with Gates--tensions that peaked last Friday when the commission issued its directive during a special session.
